Bud Selig won’t take the needle


“I don’t want to hear the commissioner turned a blind eye to this or he didn’t care about it,” Selig told Newsday in a Monday phone interview. “That annoys the you-know-what out of me. You bet I’m sensitive to the criticism.

“The reason I’m so frustrated is, if you look at our whole body of work, I think we’ve come farther than anyone ever dreamed possible,” he said, adding, “I honestly don’t know how anyone could have done more than we’ve already done.”

Sure, just because he was made commissionar as part of an owner coup and commissioned to sit on his ass as a stooge for a decade or so and then melted into the woodwork, while his entire sport became corrupt and the people who propped him up made a fortune and then claimed it wasn’t us. How could anyone possibly blame him? It’s not Ronald McDonald’s fault that hamburgers are bad for you!
